Citizens protested racism and hatred in Parc-Extension on Saturday,

According to CBC News, someone had displayed a Nazi flag in Parc-Extension earlier last week.

The protest was organized by the Parc-Ex Action Squad and described as "a festive, family-friendly and determined demonstration in opposition to racism and fascism."

People spoke out against white supremacy in English, French, Arabic and Tamil.

This event comes in the wake of the recent revelation that a prominent Neo-Nazi figure linked to five racially-motivated murders is currently living in Rosemont and working as an IT consultant in the city.

Residents and merchants from Montreal's Chinatown are speaking out against the city's plan to install a public toilet in Sun Yat Sen Park.

According to CBC News, the park, which is used for community gatherings, sacred ceremonial events and tourism, is now blocked by metal fences and gravel.

Locals say they were never consulted about the decision before the city began demolishing parts of the park.

The city has not stated when the space will be accessible again.

The park is an iconic site for Asian Montrealers and is a regular meetup for seniors to practice Tai Chi.
